Depending on the changes in consumption habits of people solid wastes in plastic, glass, papercardboardcan be recycled, such as the amount or nature of the waste is increasing day by day. This article about an importantplace in solid waste in a healthy way of assessing whether the recovery of natural resources conservation, energy savings andeconomic reasons have become mandatory.In addition, the industrial revolution and urbanization, as well as excessive consumption of unconscious behavior of today'senvironmental problems were uncovered. The environment for sustainable development is an important location. Differencesbetween countries, although some protection of ecological values in recent years one of the most controversial issue has become.This discussion of the sensitivity of people to the environment increases, the sensitivity of the new developments in the politicalfield constituted.

People do notadopt the execution of applications is quite difficult.In this context, solid waste and recycling issues by giving weight to practical training, the studies about recovery must extend.Bureaucratic obstacles to be faced by the municipality must remove and the municipality for such applications should beencouraged. In addition, legislation to punish those who acted against the interests of effective implementation of the legislation isnecessary.On the other hand, as well as seasonal difficulties of transport and route issues to be reviewed frequently, the systemeffectively and efficiently carried out for the establishment of the related units, the necessary equipment and machinery for thereceipt of municipal sources of problems to be solved is of great importance.

Inaddition, this project can be considered as a leading project to local governments and especially municipalities that have newsearches for the protection of the environment. However, as with any project, relevant parties/stakeholders need to be moresensitive to be successful such projects
